Have you been tested for food allergies? Particularly wheat or gluten? Skin tests do not always show results, but ELISA panels do.
No, not yet anyway. I just feel weak, lathergic and full of these pains. I should note I'm 26, male, healthy etc so this is not normal for me.
I started with muscle aches (knees) migraines, neck pain and severe gastrointestinal bloating etc and I was tested and was positive for a wheat and gluten allergy. I was always healthy. I had the ELISA panel, the skin test was negative. I developed intestinal candida overgrowth from it and that has multiple symptoms. I stopped wheat and gluten and was on a course of treatment I felt so much better.
Don't rule out lyme either

So, my bloods came back normal. Don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing yet as I have been referred to a specialist (gastro) and within the next week I am having a full neck & torso CT, endiscope and various other tests.
My GP was sure it may be a hiatal hernia but since seeing the specialist he is considering a peptic ulcar/h-pylori infection.
Still have aches and pains but now its primarily around the stomach area. Always having a fullness or discomfort. I don't get heartburn because I have been taking omeprazole for around 6 months.
Not as fatigued as I was however still not 100%.
